CDISC, PhUSE to strengthen interdependent process
Friday, September 8, 2017
The Clinical Data Interchange Standards Consortium (CDISC) and the Pharmaceutical Users Software Exchange (PhUSE) announced an evolution of their partnership to strengthen their work around the development and implementation of beginning-to-end standards.
CDISC and PhUSE have enjoyed a productive, working relationship for over 13 years. The two non-profit organizations partner to further each other’s mission, with CDISC, its members and volunteers providing their expertise to develop global, platform-independent data standards, and PhUSE and its over 8,000 members serving as the industry voice to regulatory agencies and standards organization with expertise in implementing standards. CDISC and PhUSE combine efforts on key initiatives, around end-to-end standards and semantics, strengthening an interdependent process.
“I am so impressed with the members and leaders of PhUSE,” commented CDISC CEO and President David R. Bobbitt. “PhUSE does an exceptional job of facilitating the implementation of CDISC standards. I look forward to our expanded partnership in the creation of more resources and tools to support implementers around the globe.”
“Since our inception, the sharing of ideas around data standards and tools for statistical and reporting has been a cornerstone of all our volunteer-driven efforts,” stated PhUSE Founder Stephen Bamford. “CDISC has always been on the forefront to drive the creation of standards. We look forward to further strengthening our collaboration and continue to help both regulators and the industry to implement these standards.”
Currently, CDISC and PhUSE are collaborating on several key projects to optimize data standards and provide best practice guidance on standards implementation. To further edify their partnership, the two organizations will sponsor mutual events, collaborate to create start-up guides, and hold joint membership drives, all with the goal of helping implementers, programmers, statisticians, data scientists and their organizations make better use of industry standards and facilitate their implementation.
